Burgers are easily the most popular item on the menu at Milo’s, a favorite hamburger joint in Central Alabama. The restaurant’s “special sauce,” which has been around more than 60 years, is what makes the burgers extra special.
Southern Railroad workers loved Milos! I worked for Southern Railway in the late 70’s and on occasion our train would have to stop near 10th avenue north to wait on other trains to arrive from Sheffield and Memphis. The engineer would remain on the engine and we – the Brakeman and Conductor – would walk over to Milos near the railroad tracks, order burgers -no seating- and then take back to the train. Best sauce ever! We would show our Milos sack of burgers to passing trains. –Jerry Morton
